Geography-a-thon 2012

The kids' school has ONE major fundraiser each year, a pledge drive that hinges on how well they perform in the annual Geography-a-thon. Each grade level has specific geography-related facts to learn, i.e. Jasper is responsible for memorizing the continents and oceans, while Roo must also know the 50 States, plus their abbreviations and capital cities.

Potential donors may pledge a dollar amount per correct answer or by lump sum. It's pretty great to watch- I think both kids probably know more about geography than I do by now!

If you're interested in donating to Roo or Jasper's Geography-a-thon campaign this year, please drop me a line ASAP. Hey, it's better than having to hawk wrapping paper or cookie dough door to door…

Yes, I know we're missing Maine. We'll find it one day.

Roo shows off her favorite states.

Jasper and Roo both seem drawn to Texas. Go figure!

Seriously, though, if you want to donate even a dollar or two to either kid's pledge drive, let me know. No pledge is too small! We can even take your pledge via PayPal if you'd like! There's nothing to buy and no salesman will contact you… unless you're related to us, in which case you will probably be getting an email or phone call over the weekend. You have been warned!
